Life On and Off an Acreage

In-sights into moving from an Acreage back to Town, plus a few things I find of interest.

Two things that horses are scared about:

1. Things that move
2. Things that don't move

A Much Better Day!

Today, Elaine came home from the hospital. After another week and a half I hope that she can last longer. She is now eating and putting on a little weight, plus is much more alert than last time home. Eight weeks in a hospital is way too long!

The other good news is that we put an offer in for a house in town and had it accepted. Elaine has not seen it yet, other than pictures, so I hope it is acceptable. For the last two weeks we have been involved in a Domino effect, where the people that want to buy our place had it conditional on their selling their place. We had it conditional on finding a suitable place. It seems that the ducks are lining up. Now comes the bank for a 5 day loan and a lawyer to sort out the details.

I have all the garage and out building packed up with 5 loads to the dump so far. Remind me, if I ever store stuff in a shed again to put down mouse poison. The little darlings really made a mess in some of the boxes.

Hopefully, November will be a great month!

So glad that Elaine is home. I wonder what she'll think of the new place? Hopefully she continues to improve now. And I hear you on the storage & mouse situation. It's gross!

Praying for you and Elaine daily, Ian. I'm so glad she's home, and I'm so glad everything is falling into place. We have made three trips to our transfer station lately... where does it all come from???
